It’s already February, but it’s still not too late for this kind of list. When you compile it with video games that I want to play and books that I want to read this year, one could just watch, read and play. For this tv shows, I will find the time.
I know Steve Zahn mostly from comedies, and I’m a bit skeptical to see him in Sci-Fi adventure tv show. And I sure don’t like when they put on the poster taglines like this: “From the network that brought you Lost.” Now I’m expecting better show than Lost was and that hard to achieve. But, the premise is intriguing: Refugees from a war-torn country 250 years in the future start showing up to seek asylum in an American town. And the trailer looks promising:
Beau Willimon wrote a screenplay for the movie The Ides of March and created tv show House of Cards. The First is his second tv show, and I am excited to see what will he do. Based on previous work I have high hopes. In The First, we follow members of a team of astronauts as they become first humans to step on Mars.
Irwin Allen, creator, and producer of original Lost in Space from the sixties produced the best disaster movies from seventies: The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno. He also made some TV disaster movies that are on my watchlist: Flood (1976) and Fire (1977.) I watched Lost in Space movie remake from the 90s, and I can’t say I loved it. But I sure like the idea of space colonists stranded on an unknown planet, light years from their destination.
The Terror is based on Dan Simmons book of the same name. It follows a crew of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror to the Arctic, in 1845–1848. The summary will say: A Royal Navy ship undertakes a perilous voyage in pursuit of the Northwest Passage, but treacherous conditions, limited resources, and low morale plague the crew. And I will give you astonishing trailer. Can’t wait to see this one.
I started watching this, and it has this Blade Runnerish vibe all over the place. Scenography is amazing, story intriguing. It already has 8,5 on IMDB so you should check it too 🙂 Here is trailer:
I am a sucker for small town shows and movies. I loved Jericho, Smallville was fun, and I binge watched Stranger Things like every other person. In Siren, Bristol Cove is a small town where mysterious girl arrives. She’s not an ordinary girl; she is proof that mermaids exist. One of the producers is Dean White. He produced The 100, one of my favorite shows and this is enough for me to put Siren in my watchlist.
The Rain is a Danish post-apocalyptic tv show on Netflix. Why am I so happy and can’t wait to see it? Because of this: After a brutal virus wipes out most of the population, two young siblings embark on a perilous search for safety.
I am a big fan of brutal viruses, and if they wipe out most of the population, it’s a plus 🙂
In my first book, Snow Outbreak, during the flu outbreak on Earth (brutal virus;), a group of guests is stranded in the first space hotel.
